Constitution and Disciplinary Standards of NBM

The NBM aka Black Axe has its own constitution as well as disciplinary standards. While some parts of these documents sound useful and good, it is deeply ironical that enforcing them would actually mean removing a huge percentage of members (uncluding most of the “big guys” in the cult) from the NBM.

ARTICLE 6: DISCIPLINE OF THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBER

ARTICLE 7: DISCIPLINE OF THE ACTIVE ZONE

ARTICLE 8: HEARING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

AFRTICLE 9: INTERPRETATION AND REVISION.

Discipline is the basic ingredient that sets the foundation of a responsible organization that will be and is true to its ideals. An organization that strives to maintain its ideals is a responsible organization. If appreciable progress is made in this progress it can be said that the members are responsible to the ideals and values set out by themselves as a group. The unique nature of human beings as individuals and our frailties as such necessitates that checks and balances are instituted to ensure modes and standards are maintained.

The integrity of the Neo Black Movement of Africa (Worldwide) depends upon each member’s acceptance of individual responsibility and respect for the rights of others. NBM expects that its members would not lie, cheat, engage in neither dishonest or unlawful behavior nor any behavior intended to inflict physical or emotional harm on another person or property.

NBM is also committed to fostering the importance of disciplinary standards as they relate to the MISSION of the movement and as a primary means of instilling commitment to HONESTY, PERSONAL INTEGRITY and a HIGHER DEGREE OF ETHICAL CONDUCT that is TRADITIONALLY EXPECTED OF THE MEN OF NBM.

Set out below is the preamble of a report of the NCOE COMMITTEE ON THE REDUCTION AND HARMONIZATION OF COMMITTEES submitted to and adopted by the NCOE in 2007.

“In line with the constitutional provisions of NBM the NCOE bestows on the council, advisory, legislative and judicial functions. While performing its advisory role the NCOE is at liberty to make suggestions to the NEXCO which coordinates and administers all aspects of the movement’s activities for the good governance of the movement. The legislative functions of the NCOE include making resolutions, approving laws and amendments to the constitution for the ratification of the National Convention. The judicial functions are based on its responsibility to discipline errant members of the NEXCO and as an appellate and ratification council for the disciplinary measures that may have been taken by any other organ or member of the movement”.

The setting out of this preamble was to enable us fully appreciate the differences between the functions of the NEXCO and NCOE (ZEXCO and ZCOE) so that while setting out the oversight tools of the NCOE it will be a total appraisal that will cover all the activities of the NEXCO and further regulate the internal activities of the NCOE to enable efficiency and functionality. It is only necessary now to put this report in context as a means of ensuring consistency in policy making at the NCOE.

The disciplinary rules described herein are to be considered the “MORAL MINIMUM” with the movement. This member code of conduct and disciplinary standards are meant to provide strong guidance as a minimum moral standard with which all members should strive to exceed.

ARTICLE 6

DISCIPLINE OF THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBER

SECTION 1

Any member found guilty of any of the above offences shall upon a disciplinary determination by the NCOE or ZCOE upon recommendation of same by the REPORTER OF THE VIOLATION and /or the Zonal Head or National Head through their executives, be subject to one or more of the following disciplinary measures:

  1. Deaxeation
  2. Suspension- indefinitely or for a designated period
  3. Probation
  4. FM- physical training
  5. Collection-Janet
  6. Fine
  7. Any other lawful punishment that does not dehumanize nor reduce a man’s sense of dignity.

When these penalties are properly imposed upon a member the penalties shall be honoured and held binding by all Zones and chapters of the movement as if same was imposed by them.

SECTION 2

DEFINITION OF PENALTIES

  1. Deaxeation:

This is a permanent cessation of membership; once expelled membership will not be considered unless requirements for new intakes as stated in the constitution are fulfilled.

Any deaxed person shall:

  1. Surrender to the Zonal Head or National Head his official membership certificate, membership card and all his regalia, clothing or pin/jewelry bearing any identity to the movement.
  2. Remove himself and his personal effects from the property of the Zone or National body/Movement whilst bearing at the back of his mind the fact that he may not return on any occasion.
  3. Not attend any meeting of any Zone or National Body.
  4. Cease to identify himself with the movement in any manner.

It is worthy and imperative to note that re admittance shall be considered by and only by the NCOE as a member of the movement if after a judicial review by the NCOE it is found that Justice was not served in the process leading to the expulsion.

  1. Suspension:

This is a temporary cessation of membership; its period may either be indefinite or definite depending on the gravity of the violators actions as determined by the ZCOE or NCOE.

Any suspended person shall:

  1. Remove himself and his personal effects from the property of the Zone or National body/Movement whilst bearing at the back of his mind the fact that he may not return on any occasion unless expressly permitted to do so by the NCOE.
  2. Not attend any meeting of any Zone or National Body unless expressly permitted to do so for the purposes of a judicial review by the NCOE.
  3. Cease to identify himself with the movement in any manner.

It is worthy and imperative to note that any offender returning to the movement after a period of suspension shall be made to aver and sign an undertaken to be of good behavior forthwith.

  1. Probation:

A member on probation shall:

  1. Follow the limitations, restrictions and terms of the probation.
  2. Pay all dues, fees and assessments applicable to all members in good standing unless expressly excused therefrom by the terms of the designated probation.
  3. Physical training (FM)

As originally intended ‘FM’ is fashioned as an endurance test in the mold of the African   manhood initiation process and it is used during initiation of new members as a beginning in the training and development of a sound mind and body. It also serves as a reminder to an offending member of the essence of his membership. FM is a combination of different physical exercises under the command of a group of ‘PLAYERS’ and is at times combined with another mode of punishment known and referred to as JANET-COLLECTION. It is also used as a reminder for the newly elected officials of the responsibilities they are embarking on. As society evolves so also does its rules. For health reasons and other encumberances it is necessary that FM be controlled, timed and monitored to avoid ‘ACCIDENTS’.

  1. Collection-Janet.

 

The whole essence of collection as originally intended is a process where an offender is made to pass through a ‘HUMBLING’ experience when asked to ‘DOWN’ for collection. The idea is not to punish but to serve as a reminder to practice expected ideals and as a deterrent against future occurrences of such misconduct. The number of ‘JANET’ to be collected should not be the emphasis. The emphasis is to initiate and elicit a feeling of remorse from the offender for corrective purposes. It must be noted that using Janet as punishment is ‘CORPORAL’ punishment and when used in this form it loses its purpose when whoever is implementing the order tries to equate the offender or anger or inconvenience caused by the member with the number of Janets collected. The enforcer of a collection order and pronouncer of such order must eschew hatred and seek to correct rather than act perverse.
A fine is a compulsory tax that is paid by an offender either in monetary terms or in   kind.

A member who is fined shall within the prescribed time pay the fine or carry out the obligation to the Zone or National body. Refusal, failure and/or neglect to do same shall subject the member to being declared a non financial member who shall be exposed to being placed under more penalties including deaxeation as determined by the ZCOE or NCOE.

ARTICLE 7

  4. And other offences as determined by the NCOE

This disciplinary action against the zone may and would be taken by the NCOE if it is necessary to:

  1. Ensure the safety and well being of members of that zone or other innocent individuals or for the preservation of lives and property in that zone.
  2. In order that a formal or informal investigation into the activities of the zone be performed as a means of ascertaining the potential violations and individual violators.

    • najuju says:

      If all of you followed the constitution as you suggest, then 90% of you would have to be de-axed, including the NH. Because even NBM’s constitution says that you must respect the laws of the country you are in. Well, killing, scamming, rape, drug trafficking, forced prostitution, fraudulent immigration, and election rigging is illegal in every country, and most of you fine “freedom fighters” are deep into one or more of these. Therefore the term “glorious” is more than inappropriate. NBM is a bunch of useless murderers and fraudsters, a shitty worldwide mafia.

      • T.black says:

        LOL sure. You are unable to string together a coherent sentence but still believe that illiterate thugs like yourself will be able to take me down? Well good luck with that. The days of NBM are counted, not mine. They have started to take down cultist politicians in Edo State now, and that’s just the beginning.

  10. Hybrid says:

    @najuju,,is obvious that you are or once a member of this great movement.even ur dsiplay picture proves that.,,,,obviously something or someone gave u a very wrong impression about this great movement,,even as great and perfect as our Lord Jesus,,he selected 12 apostles but yet one betrayed him not to talk abt us imperfect humans..the movement have some miscreants no doubt but its doing its best to eradicate those idiots….be rest assured that few years from now the movement will be re-defined for good..

      Bam reasoning @hybrid. @najuju, it is obvious that you were once a member and have a good knowledge too but i want you to rest assured that your hurtled and misleading articles won’t bring a dent to our great movement. I also believe you may have been de-axed for committing a heinous crime hence, your bitterness. Well, for your information, NBM of Africa(Worldwide) is a lawful organisation, duly registered and endorsed. Sorry Ju! your loss. If you have balls, make your self known so we can talk like men, rather than hiding behind the superhighway and ranting. All Axemen present, this site belongs to a ju. Contact your ZH, TH, Cordis for the real NBM website. Dodorima to all Glorious Axemen…

      • najuju says:

        Registered, yes. But at the same time listed in the cult prohibition bill, a.k.a prohibited. And what difference does a “registration” make anyway when your conduct is that of a mafia? NBM has already been identified as a mafia in several countries. Organized crime you know?
        You can believe whatever you want but that doesn’t make it true. Continue to delude yourself, foolish assman.

    Great work

    • AXLMX says:

      @najuju..i have quietly observed your updates and you must have a reason for what you are doing but your grievances with n.b.m can be tabled and resolved.In every peaceful organisation and movement there are the bad eggs who resort to violence even in the days of martin Luther king.Many of these murderers as u call them will not just up and decide to murder someone.their reason for such must have been retaliation for a fallen aye man or their hands where forced into action.we believe in equality not oppression or abuse of power.u shouldn’t blame certain people telling you your days are numbered.put yourself in their shoes and their level.from how you have spoken and your write up.u are learned and obviously of high intellect.i ask to desist from this.you painting our movement in a pschotic way doesn’t change anything.to be honest it only motivates more people to seek entry so you are doing more good than harm.What you are fighting for is what we are trying to change and put an end to.Desist and give us some time.all organisation’s have bad eggs but your gun is aimed at n.b.m,its aimed at a fraternity whose goals are to elevate members and promote peace and equality but many are trying to bastard it.Focus on other groups.i couldn’t careless whoever you are but as a proud and bonafide member of n.b.m,i don’t know how u are privy to such information but as you are it’s between you and your God.whatever damaged you hoped to inflict has only made it more appealing.

      • najuju says:

        lets sum up what you have commented:
        – it’s ok to kill if it’s for a “reason” such as brainless cult wars
        – it’s ok to issue daily death threats if you dislike the truth being told
        – at the same time NBM “promotes peace”
        This makes as much sense as everything you guys write (which is: none).

        You know, a group is not defined by what it CLAIMS to stand for. It is defined by what it actually DOES stand for. In reality NBM stands for CRIME in every variety but certainly nothing good. The Nigerian law is of this opinion as well, which is why NBM is ILLEGAL. Why do you think hundreds of assmen have been arrested these past months? Because they were working for world peace? Oh come on…!
        NBM makes it to the newspapers almost daily for crimes of all sorts. You guys keep coming out with the lame “bad eggs” excuse. What would be the correct name for NBM if we take reality into account then? THE NEO BAD EGG MOVEMENT? How many good eggs are there in this mendacious mafia of 419 boys, murderers, robbers, rapists, drug traffickers, human traffickers, fraudsters and generally raging lunatics?

  14. innocentlord says:

    Najuju, please answer these questions in all sincerity in you as a noble man (i.e. If you are).

    1. Where you or are you an AXEMAN?

    2. Are all other fraternity innocent of the accusations you’ve levelled against the ‘NBM’?

    3. You didn’t just wake up one morning and decide to aim at ‘NBM’. What happened before now? and why go to any length to achieve your motives.

    4. Are you doing this to gain attention?

    There are countless question on my tongue, but please, please answer these four, thanks.

    • najuju says:

      1) this has been asked a million times and I said a million times that I won’t answer it. Firstly because it’s irrelevant, secondly because one of two possible answers might put certain people at risk due to the usual uninformed assmanly speculation, and thirdly it’s just more fun to wait for the next wild guess you guys come up with 😀

      2) nope. Different names, exact same shit

      3) one glorious day I woke up and found myself enabled and motivated to do what I’m doing. It’s better to have a good kick at one cankerwork rather than none, right? Do I really need to spell out to you why it’s necessary and worth putting some effort into fighting one of Nigeria’s bigger scourges?

      4) Yes, but most likely not the attention you have in mind. It’s not getting ME as an individual any attention, fame, or money since nobody knows who I am. That’s not what this is about. The attention shall be drawn to the CRIMES OF NBM WORLDWIDE. And sooner or later action will be taken against this mafia. If not in Nigeria then in other countries where assmen are constituting a major nuisance, running crime syndicates, and giving Nigeria a bad name in every way possible.

      Feel free to ask whatever else is on your mind

    @Najuju or what ever U call ur self. u can never ever stop NBM, Your words means nothing. People like U have come and gone and NBM still stands.
    U think U know all but its clear to me that U don’t know what U know not. Pls stop castigating NBM and pls give some respect to the colour of ur skin. NBM has seen people like U long time ago and still exist NBM is fill with men with strong good heart, men are always and ready to stand in what the belief in at all time. The truth is that the member of NBM are everywhere in the world and not violent, good people with high reputation, representing African tradition and culture, standing against oppression against black race, we stand for equality and justice and we embrace peace at all time but when faced with trouble by an outsider, we defend our self and reputation to the last blood because we are men with pride of whom we are and our race. We are the only organisation with good ideology and motive to defend all black race including YOU (Nauru). It will amount to a clear unqualified generalization to judge NBM wrongly because of the unknown activity of a very few unknown individuals that claim to be member of our glorious organization…

    If U have issues with our organization that made U to point fingers on us, I believe that there are other better ways to settle it peacefully than the way ur going about it now. NBM I know and am a member will always be willing to listen to U and settle what ever it is peacefully so pls STOP CRITISIZING US (NBM).

    Am an AXE LORD from ZHT (Anambra Z)and am very very proud to be, cos i stand in what i believe in.

PC is respected world wide not because they can”t kill but they “REFORMED”, EIYE is undergoing a serious reformation right now. A.A.M. we are all NIGERIANS lets work together to build a nation without hatred but progress, for our children to be free in assessing any part of this nation and be welcomed based on the Love and passion for the Nation, we should think of our children in any thing we do.

I will urge your organisation to do that fast its tarnishing your image to the brim..recently they caught a serial killer which was identified as a member of the neo black movement… It should be best deem fit if everything can turn out good…I myself as history with the nbm .have been threatened so many times but a reasonable human being. Will. Not nail an organisation for the flaws of it

      • najuju says:

        you seem to be very confused. If you had some common sense you’d understand that I am not an assman and it therefore makes little sense to blame me for their wrongdoing and appeal to me for it to be corrected. All I do is piss them off by posting the truth about them.
        And yes, a reasonable human being certainly WILL nail an organisation for its flaws. It’s generally known as ACCOUNTABILITY when organisations such as NBM are called out for what they do. It’s also called freedom of speech.If you don’t want to use yours, fine. Don’t come around telling me what to do or not do though.

  19. Jean Akin says:

    @najuju It is evident that you are a meticulous researcher since you managed to obtain the Constitution of the NBM, an organization of which by your own testimony you are not a part of. I tender my respect for the hard work.

    I however notice that you seem a bit unobjective in your perception of the NBM in that having read through the aforementioned Constitution, you would have noticed there was little or zero tolerance for unlawful activity yet because a few persons in society have been arrested/accused or even found guilty for/of offenses or crimes you condemned the NBM without concrete evidence of its culpability.

    As an intellectual, I recognize you as a peer and I confess I perceive you as an individual with good conscience and intentions but I must admit that I think you being more idealistic than realistic.

    WHY?!

    The NBM can not be held culpable for any offence or crime committed by its member(s) whether in its name or otherwise except there is concrete/documentary evidence of it corporate direct or indirect participation but you rather conveniently overlooked that which raises the question of whether you are being ignorantly prejudicial or knowledgeably biased in your criticism in whichever case you can only create more problems than solutions.
    e.g. I cannot in good conscience say the Nigerian Police (NP) as a corporate body OR ALL its officers are extortionists, robbers, rapists, fraudsters, murderers e.t.c. simply because one, few or many of its officers have found engaged in such activity. That would be pedestrian and very myopic.

    Now to speak hypothetically, let us presume that the NBM is preemptively or retaliatorily violent, I know that MAN is born with the inalienable right to self-preservation and if violence is required in the cause of the NBM/members protecting the life/lives and property of members from destruction then it may be justifiable and even justiciable especially considering the fact that the response rate of legal law enforcement machinery in Africa to incidents is mostly slow and sometimes non-existent.
    In fact, the NBM; IF it is violent, is no different than any government in the world sworn to defend/PROtect its citizens even if that required causing harm to other humans not under its sovereignty. Judges have sentenced human beings to death and legal execution of such judgements have be executed.
    I however agree and maintain that any form of unjustifiable/unjustifiable violence judicial or otherwise is condemnable.

    When all is said and done, I, as realist idealist, know that the history of MAN is riddled with man’s inhumanity to his fellow and therefore as civilization evolved, man developed different institutions such as governments, fraternities; religious/ethnic/racial/social/occultic, to serve whatever common interests exists.

    My advice to you @najuju; of course I recognize your right to refuse it as I retain mine not to tolerate your impositions, is that generalization is an error that breeds injustice so you would do well to engage all issues within their context.

    I bid you peace.

    • najuju says:

      Thanks for your comment. Let me just ask you one thing: in the constitution it says indeed that no unlawful behaviour is tolerated from members. You know and I know that this is not the case at all. If it were, the national head would have to be deaxed along with the entire Italy, Spain, Japan etc. etc. zones. In fact, about 95% of all members would have to be deaxed for 419, violence, rape and every other crime under the sun. Is this the case? You know and I know that it is not. Are you seriously trying to tell us that NBM is a benign “movement” when in reality its only purpose is to facilitate the criminal exploits of its members? It doesn’t matter what the constitution says since it’s not acted upon. It also doesn’t matter what objectives NBM claims to have as long as they are nothing but hollow phrases but are completely meaningless in reality.
